Rama was the son of King Dashrath of Ayodhya. He was a wonderful man. He was preached by his Guru Vashistha. Then Vishvamitraji sought his assistance to finish demons in the jungle and near his Ashram. Shri Ram was married to ‘Janaki’ known as Sita’ the princess of Mithila. To obey the orders of his father, he went into exile for 14 years.
His wife sita and brother Lakshmana went with him. Ravana the King of Lanka was stole away Sita. Lord Rama invaded Lanka and defeated Ravana.
It was a defeat of wrong by the right. It was a Dharam Yudh, which LordRama won. He got his wife back.
Rama protected Rishis and killed demons. Sita as an ideal wife was the follower of Rama in all his joys and sorrows. Rama’s father Dashratha, died of grief without Rama but kept his word. Rama obeyed his father’s wish and his brother, Lakshmana went with him to serve him with heart and soul. Bharat too did not accept crown but ruled over Ayodhya as Rama’s steward. ‘ Rama loved the people of Ayodhya and the people respected him.
He treated the low caste boatman as his own brother. In the forest of Chitra Koot, he treated the Bhils as his own men. He became a true protector of’ all sages in trouble. His friendship with Sugreeva is an example for us.
Hanuman proved his true follower. Sita lived the life of purity and devotion in Lanka. Thus we see that victory comes to the good people.
The wicked people suffer in the end. Ramayana gives us consolation when we are in trouble.
